Did you know that your neighborhood association can offer assistance and support when you receive notice of a land use proposal or decision?
If you have questions about a notice, feel free to contact the Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Association (MSANA) Land Use Chair (email@example.com). We can help you understand and respond to notices.
Please keep in mind that responses to proposals and appeals of decisions are limited to addressing the relevant Zoning Code approval criteria. Not liking the idea of a new development does not mean that we can effectively oppose it! However, the MSANA Land Use Chair can help you understand your options in responding to land use notices.
Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work together on the land use issues that matter to you.
The Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Association wants to share our neighbors’ community projects, nonprofit services, or learning opportunities at upcoming General Meetings!
If you represent a community-minded project or organization that neighbors could learn from or partner with, let us put you on a future agenda to share a short presentation. Meetings are typically the first Wednesday of the month, at 6:30 p.m. at the Mt. Scott Community Center.
Email email@example.com to propose your 20-minutes-or-less presentation and get on a future agenda!
If you’ve ever walked, biked, skateboarded or driven past SE 72nd & Woodstock Boulevard, you’ve seen the Arleta Triangle. Lots of folks see it every day and don’t know that it’s a project of your Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Association.
Volunteers give a few hours to maintain the space every month. From planting native plants, to picking up litter, to big projects — it’s all done by our neighbors.
But we’re going to need a LOT of neighbors on Sept. 29th to accomplish our biggest project yet – installing a new brick patio in the center of the space. Volunteers will be needed to move blocks, set the blocks, and make sure everything is level.
If you can help, sign up now on our Facebook event. We’re going to need at least 20 volunteers committed to get the project done. We’ll provide coffee, snacks, and a Mt. Scott-Arleta neighborhood t-shirt for everyone who participates! Contact Meghan Humphreys at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about volunteering.
What a wonderful Neighborhood Cleanup Event we had on Saturday May 5th!
More than 40 community members showed up to help unload vehicles, break down items for recycling, manage traffic, and make our community cleaner. We got to meet and connect with our neighbors and learn some new things through the experience. We received more than 150 car and truck loads of stuff and saved those community members hundreds of dollars. And, we raised a few hundred dollars (estimated) for each of Foster-Powell and Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Associations.
I would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all the folks who volunteered their time on a Saturday and on the days leading up to the event. You. Kicked. Butt.
It was hot, and it was humid and you pushed through it all with a smile. NOT ONLY THAT, but many of you stayed late! After a day starting at 9 am, many of you stuck around well after our posted closing time of 2:30 pm so that we could serve the remaining cars in line. It took us until around 4 pm to complete everything, so you basically worked a full day for your neighbors. WOW! That is impressive. You guys went above and beyond, and it made me proud to be part of this community.
YOU make our community stronger. Thank you. Hope to see you at next year’s cleanup and at all of the neighborhood association meetings in between. 😉
